Maine Operation Lifesaver

I was approached a while ago by a member of Maine Operation Lifesaver to provide a photo of a yellow NB Southern engine for a project they were doing. They printed up a set of 12 "trading cards" featuring all the railways operational in Maine - the MM&A, Amtrak, Guilford (now Pan Am), St. Lawrence & Atlantic, Maine Eastern, and Eastern Maine (NBSR). I provided them with several and they selected a shot of NBSR 2317 at the McAdam station.

I received the set of 12 yesterday and I think they're great. The front of each card has a photo of an engine... oh heck, just look.

The second NBSR card has a shot of 9802 leaving the bridge at.. Mattawamkeag, I think. It's credited to Carl Dentremont. Each card has different text on the back.

You can see the complete set on their web site.
